We had another terrific time at the river. The weather couldn't have been more perfect: sunny warm days coupled with crisply cool nights.
Leaves of gold, red, and yellow fluttered to the ground with every breeze, looking like large and colorful splotches of rain. Mother Nature has been busy spinning her magic.
The critters weren't idle, either. We saw an assortment of frogs. Heard the howls of coyotes. Were buzzed by a beautiful young eagle.
The smell of burning leaves gave a bittersweet reminder that summer is truly gone. And as with so many other things in life, we say good-bye, savoring our memories while we look forward to what lies ahead. A newly born season has arrived.
So welcome back, Fall. It's good getting to know you again.
